lyrics

I saw Mt. Everest
when I was 3
It was the smallest mountain
I'd ever seen
Compared to this
Compared to this

God talks to me
In license plates
And he said
Honey child now please be brave
so I did
Oh i did

And the world keeps pushing me
And the world keeps pushing me
Round

Get a little bent
Get a little strange
Keep it kinda weird
Keep it hard to gauge
Don't keep it pent
It'll turn to rage
Cuz its hard to fit
When you're bent

I moved to the city
And I cut my hair
Fell in love with girls
No I ain't scared anymore
No no more

A little psylocibin
and you'll see the silver lining
And the trees talk like your mother
Stop fightin' with your brother
Kids
You're all just kids

And the world keeps pushing me
And the world keeps pushing me
Down

Get a little bent
Get a little strange
Get a little weird
Keep it hard to gauge
Don't keep it pent
It'll turn to rage
Its hard to fit
When you're bent

It's hard to to fit
When you're bent

It's hard to to fit
When you're bent

It's hard to to fit
When you're bent
When you're bent
When you're bent
When you're bent

Yeah it's hard to to fit
When you're bent

about

Mercy Bell Nashville, Tennessee

Mercy Bell's new self-titled album, released October 18, 2019, finds the queer Filipino-American singer and songwriter claiming her voice in a way that is personal and rapturous. A bicoastal upbringing in California and New England, followed by moves to New York and Arkansas before landing in East Nashville, give her a perspective on life that is broad, deep and uniquely American. -Jeremy Darrow ... more
